Prepare for a more climate-resilient future

Unpredictable storms, drought, wildfires, sea level rise, and more are impacting communities and their economies, infrastructure, public health, and ecosystems right now.

“I worked with the Peak team on a large and complicated project to develop a climate action plan for the City of Bellingham. I was impressed by Peak’s reliability, consistency, and steady commitment to excellence. I would recommend Peak without reservations for similar projects involving work of high analytical and political complexity, and with critical real-world importance.”

“Kudos to Peak for their facilitation role in guiding the SLS and IT work over the last year or more in the Snohomish and Stillaguamish watersheds. We are seeing good momentum with frameworks taking shape and a robust work plan to direct this work. Thank you for advancing integrated floodplain management and collaboration in these watersheds.”

Peak’s three-session course on Climate Change for the Academy for Lifelong Learning was impressive and greatly exceeded all expectations! Clearly, the depth of information was meaningful to many. David Roberts gave an outstanding presentation relevant to local perspectives. This is the best (and most current) climate change info we have ever received.”
